Artificial Intelligence to drive new UK demand response initiative

Innovative energy start-up Upside Energy has joined forces with a leading specialist university in a demand response project that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to reduce the UK’s reliance on reserve capacity provided by traditional power stations. Upside Energy’s ground-breaking virtual energy store was crowned the winner of edie’s Innovation Zone Competition at the 2016 edie Live exhibition in Birmingham The collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, which will manage a portfolio of storage assets to provide real-time energy reserves to the grid, has been awarded a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) grant by Innovate UK. Upside Energy’s pioneering ‘virtual energy store’ connects renewable energy to distribution networks, using machine learning and AI methods. Upside will use the University’s specialist skills in these areas to optimise algorithms that manage demand response of different…
